for the slide today perhaps a note from ubs analyst steve malonovich cutting the estimates and the price target. let's go to bert that coombs at the breaking news desk. >> thank you, scott. we have an update now on that shooting at the sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. nbc news is reporting as many as 27 people may be dead from that shooting which broke out this morning shortly after 9:30. that's when police were called. as many as 17 to 18 of the victims are children. 7 to 8 adults including the gunman who authorities described to nbc news as a 20-year-old connecticut man who was dressed in black and was carrying two handguns. connecticut state police are set to begin a briefing at this hour. danbury officials and hospital officials tell nbc news that at least three people have been transported to the hospital. again, to as many as 27 people killed. we will bring you more details as they become available. back to you. >> thank you very much, bertha. we'll keep checking back with you and monitoring the situation. obviously an incredibly tragic situation still unfolding in ne

. they desperately want him to cave basically. in an effort to build the case against his old boss, steve cohen, and, instead, he's cooperating with cohen. is this a full-out cooperation? >> remember what we reported yesterday? they are paying for the attorney. we don't know if there's reasons for that or possibly an employment agreement that covers even employees fired two years ago for poor performance, and charged with something on the job, charged with insider trading, faces 20 years in jail for actions he did while he was at sac capital, but this is a nuance, that's more than a nuance. here's what's going on. in addition to paying for that attorney, there is an agreement between the capital and the attorney charles stillman. what's this mean? this is interesting. what it does is that it means that any time there's a document request from the feds, goes what, cohen knows about it. any time, you know, that the feds bring in martoma, want to talk about him again, cohen knows about it. his attorneys know that if matthew does, indeed, flip, he's got the playbook of the government against him. this i
, not looking at 6.5% threshold but the broader conditions, a big debate, steve liesman's nemesis talks a lot about people being beamed to mars in. your mind what is happening to the job market? are we creating jobs? is that why it's coming down, or is it because people -- the degree of discouraged workers? what's your sense of how quickly it's fallen because of new employment? >> so on the first question the chain cpi versus the fixed weight cpi is a technical issue. the change cpi is better for most economists because it allows for changes in the mix of goods and services that people actually consume more effectively. however, whether that's more appropriate for say social security indexing or not, i think that's ultimately a political decision. i suppose the rejoinder would be that neither the cpi nor the change cpi may be particularly a good measure for the cost of living of social security recipients, so those are the kinds of questions that congress is going to have to deal with. second part of your question was -- >> what actually is happening to the debate over the extent to which une

that much impact on the labor market. november jobs numbers coming in much stronger than expected. steve leisman who's had a very busy week here to talk about the numbers and put it in context for us. >> hi, sue. no substantive sandy in the jobs numbers. the lack of sandy effect has us scratching our heads, what they said. i just got off the phone with the guy who's the head of doing the numbers, labor numbers at the bls. he walked me through the rather extensibilive process they did fine out if there was any sandy effect, including sampling of businesses in a flood tide areas. >> it was very meticulous. >> i'm pretty convinced they did a good job figuring out if there was an effect and there is no effect which brings us to the numbers which you could believe on face value as much as you can. they'll revise this again. they only come forward with 60% to 70% of the sample. unemployment rate falling 7.7% because largely a drop in the labor force. average hourly earnings up 0.2%. despite positive headlines, xwoeld man sax says we interpret this report as one only slightly better than expect

to check in with steve paulson for an update on the very cold weather. a pretty sunrise. >> we do have very, very cold readings, crystal clear. it's cold this morning. freeze warning is out. it's so cold that lori myers in walnut creek sent us this picture of her cat, chili dog parked right in front of the heater. i love it. if your cat is there, i understand as well. temperatures when you get in the 20s, it's really cold. cold morning, turning cloudy tomorrow. it will be warmer. if you have to travel, thursday or monday, later or sooner, friday, saturday and sunday will be very dicey especially if you are heading north towards redding or even shasta. there's already -- it's already beginning to kick in around oregon and washington. it will be very dicey. freeze warning out for the north bay goes another 45, 47 minutes. frost advisory, the stronger the two advisories, a lot of won'ts in the -- a lot of 20s in the north. 28 napa. that's at the airport but it's closer to town. fairfield, 27. concord, livermore, 30. redwood city, 23. i've seen 29 palo alto. a lot of 30s around mill valley and

-- highway 24 through la fayette, no delays. here's steve. >>> mostly clear, cold this morning. a little breeze for some. most temperatures are in the 30s. there are some upper 20s. we have a system coming in. it's splitting. i think the pattern -- this is a sign of things to come here for a while after what's been a very, very busy november and disease. i think things quiet down in january. part of this system will go north. part it is will south. 28 in santa rosa. 47 in livermore. this may be a very localized event. this is at the livermore airport. out by the lab, it's 33. they are getting a little northeast wind off the altamont pass. that's the only thing i can think of because not far away, it's 15 degrees chillier. upper 30s for some lowser to the -- to the bay. 6 -- for some lower to the bay. 6 below in tahoe. man. that's cold. see a little bit of shower activity trying to form off the north coast. i think this is falling apart. this low is heading towards southern california and i think therein lies the trend. the pattern looks quiet for the for the next 10, 15 days. you usually

. >> steve wise, what do you do with apple? at least it's bounced a bit off that intraday. people throwing around the death cross as well, so everybody seemingly has a reason for why the stock is in trouble today. >> it's so much fun to argue and disagree with him, but i don't think that has much -- i think everybody is -- a lot of people are getting worried that have been in the stock for a long time about the taxes next year, the headlines, sell, sell, sell, old newspapers, business daily, so taking profits. simple. >> joe terranova was sitting right where you are yesterday, that he had trimmed the timing certainly seems to be -- >> there's no rush to buy, is the bottom line. >> the technicals don't look that good, absolutely that's the case, but in addition to that, the stock has missed earns two straight quarters. you need to see apple perform in the coming quarter. >> you buy it here? >> i think a lot of this stuff gets important, but the chatter about the firm today, how much apple could be sitting number one. what we're doing here is taking price and trying to retrofit it with funda
26 days away from the fiscal cliff. steve liesman joins us now live from the treasury. he has an exclusive interview with one of the key negotiators at the white house, secretary of treasury timothy geithner. >> maria, thank you. i'm here with the secretary of treasury at a crucial time. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> speaker boehner has put forward a proposal which "usa today" says demonstrates more political courage the democrats have shown. the white house is saying today it's not even wor ty -- worthy of a response. what are we missing? >> i think we are making progress. they acknowledged they were prepapered to do $800 billion in higher taxes on part of the american economy. that's part of the balanced framework. that's definitely progress. what we need to see is have them acknowledge the rates go up. if they're willing to accept that and commit to that, then we think we could do something good for the economy. we can make the government use the taxpayers' money more efficiently, lock in some spending savings and do some long-term entitlement reforms to make s

, you were talking about some momentum on the upside. we got steve coming in, decreasing his price. analysts aren't hanging out at a thousand, 900 dollars. i think you see a lot more companies downgrading themselves based on price. there could be a lot more down side momentum than upside. >> the top rated i.t. analyst on the street joins us now live. steve welcome back to halftime. >> thanks for having me. >> your note is certainly the talk of the street today. and a lot of people are focusing on it for the reason why apple is almost back at those november lows. why have you taken down the numbers? why have you cut the price target? >> well, we do cut our price target from 780 to 700 and we've taken our earnings estimates down. and the reason is that my colleagues in asia are getting a sense that the production for the iphone in particular is coming down again. i think the street has understood that production would probably be down about 20% in the march versus the december quarter. that is not terribly atypical but we are now sensing it may be down as much as 40%. we're not quite
